When the Taliban puts a bounty on Afghan director Hassan Fazili's head, he is forced to flee the country with his wife and two young daughters. Capturing the family's uncertain journey firsthand, Fazili documents their harrowing trek across numerous borders revealing the danger and uncertainty facing refugees seeking asylum juxtaposed with the unbreakable love shared amongst the family on the run.
What The Critics Are Saying:
It is the gift of "Midnight Traveler" to allow us to feel this family's fate in the pit of our stomachs. If the plight of refugees has ever seemed abstract, this film makes sure you know how real it is.
